Jesus came to earth as a humble servant, He is the “lamb of God” who takes away the sin of the world.
His return will be much different. Jesus will appear in the sky as our King; returning to earth to establish His Kingdom, He will crush Satan and evil will be wiped away throughout the entire world.
The Lord will gather His “Bride,” the CHURCH, all who love Him and are saved by His blood. He will establish His perfect eternal Kingdom.
Believers will be “co-heirs” given responsibilities on the “new earth.” We will receive eternal bodies and every tear will be wiped away. We will enjoy perfect harmony with God and all believers.
We will return to the “Garden” where we can partake of the tree of life. There will be no more sin, only perfect life.
The Lord will bring His people home to paradise!
TO GOD BE THE GLORY FOREVER AND EVER!!!
MARK 13:26-27, NIV
26 “At that time men will see the Son of Man coming in clouds with great power and glory.
27 And he will send his angels and gather his elect from the four winds, from the ends of the earth to the ends of the heavens.
REVELATIONS 21:1-8, NIV
1 Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea.
2 I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband.
3 And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God.
4 He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”
5 He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.”
6 He said to me: “It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To him who is thirsty I will give to drink without cost from the spring of the water of life.
7 He who overcomes will inherit all this, and I will be his God and he will be my son.
8 But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars-their place will be in the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.”
REVELATION 22:1-6, NIV
1 Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, as clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb
2 down the middle of the great street of the city. On each side of the river stood the tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations.
3 No longer will there be any curse. The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in the city, and his servants will serve him.
4 They will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads.
5 There will be no more night. They will not need the light of a lamp or the light of the sun, for the Lord God will give them light. And they will reign for ever and ever.
6 The angel said to me, “These words are trustworthy and true. The Lord, the God of the spirits of the prophets, sent his angel to show his servants the things that must soon take place.”
